    Do you remember that old commercial that had two little boys who didn’t want to eat cereal that was supposed to be good for you?  The two little boys slid the cereal bowl over to their little brother and said “Let’s get Mikey to try it…”

    … so who wants to be Mikey tonight?

    Apparently even Mikey doesn’t want it now.
